Critic Reviews for Citizen Hearst

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (1)

Sometimes Citizen Hearst feels as breezy and electric as the newsreels Hearst pioneered; other times it feels like the video they'll make you watch during orientation on your first day at 300 West 57th.

Audience Reviews for Citizen Hearst

½

it was interesting; worth the 90-minutes lost, and the $10.50 cost of a ticket. However, it did seem skewed revealing the virtues of the Hearst empire, and began to feel like an advertisement at times. Of course, at the end during the credits, up rolls, "Copyright Hearst Corp 2012". Hmmm. Still, it was good mid-week entertainment...something to talk about at work tomorrow...It;s piqued my curiosity, and a little research regarding Hearst Corp is in order.
